What are you going to do if its just a switch and no wires there?

Should start a list of uses for it....

You will have to ask the CPO dealer as obviously since you asked the question it does nothing when pushed. I will say that I had aftermarket heated seats placed in a Tahoe a few years back and that rocker is a dead ringer for the one they used...but you also said you had OEM seat heaters.......

If it really was an older couple's car maybe the switch controlled the in-car O2 for his breathing tube.......fun to guess anyway.....

Lol. It's actually a good idea. And it is truly is the best guess given, not being bias in the slightest.

It's not for the cooler inside the armrest because that switch is always inside the armrest. Try following it out.

Seriously though, we are all curious now. Keep us posted.

I have an aftermarket switch similar to that in my car, but it's under my steering column and runs my e-cutouts. I also had a switch that looked identical to that one in my DSM but it was a fuel pump kill switch. In case you needed any ideas on what to use it for now that it's there!

Ah.. That button is probably for the built-in defibrillator in the passenger seat, just in case the old wife decided to kick the bucket while he was driving the BMW faster than she can say "oops, I crapped my pants."

+1...laser jammer on/off switch. The back of the console is one area to draw power for the laser jammer so the previous owner thought it would be a good location.

the Laser Interceptor kill switch has a rounded enclosure and should have a green led when switched on. That one looks like a white marking for the on position?

The Blinder laser jammer switch is more rectangular.

I have serious doubts that gramps had jammers unless he wasn't the original owner.
